When the Fog Rolls In

Evangeline in the bar unwinds
She saw her man Gabe her secret love so fine
But Gabe didn’t speak to Evangeline
And her tears grew warm as the fog rolled in

From across the bar she says she’s fine
Thinking how he’d sing, “Evangeline! She’s mine oh mine!”
He laughed with his friends while she was crying
And he left the bar when the fog rolled in

She walks from the bar
She walks to her car
She opens the note
That Gabe had wrote

“Meet me tonight I’m sorry
I’ll be waiting for you love
Please come get me
I know it’s late
And hard to see
But I can’t take this misery now
Please hurry dear
I’ll be waiting by that old oak tree”

So she drove to the spot that once was theirs
Where he carved a heart to prove he cared
Evangeline waited unaware
Oak trees look alike when the fog rolls in

For an hour or more she had waited
She prayed that this pain would soon be sated
Then Evangeline it was love she hated
So she gave up on Gabe when the fog rolled in

Her foot on the gas heavy as her heart
Those headlights can’t cut through the mist and dark
Holding back tears all alone in that car
In that runaway car
When the fog rolled in

Gabe lay down tired against the tree
Without him there ain’t much a life for me
She didn’t brake she just crashed right in
To where Gabe fell asleep when the fog rolled in

Well together forever in peace to lay
The secret affair of the girl and her Gabe
Evangeline with her love will stay
And you can still see their ghosts
When the fog rolls in
